Gracious God, we lift before you this morning all those for whom lock-down threatens their very well-being, both mentally and spiritually, for those already suffering from anxiety and depression who will be feeling overwhelmed in the current climate.

God of healing, may your presence be felt by those suffering, in any way,  from mental health issues at this time.  We pray for a sense of peace and calm for all those in need. We pray for conversation for those in need of reassurance. So too, we pray for all those agencies and charities seeking to offer support in difficult circumstances. You are our God. May we live in the power of Your strength today. Amen.
